Lou Reed’s Instruments Up for Auction

From Rolling Stone:

Gearheads rejoice: A number of items used by Lou Reed and his band over the years are going up for auction on eBay. The current listings include two Kurzweil keyboards, a vintage distortion rack mount with foot switch, and a Pendulum Stereo Preamp for acoustic instruments plus a footswitch and three preamp modules, two of which were ostensibly modified by Reed.

According to a note on Reed’s Facebook, more items will be posted online in the coming days, while those in the New York City area can sign up for exclusive listings that will be available for local pickup before they are put on eBay.

The auction, however, will not feature Reed’s more priceless guitars, amps and effects, which will be archived by Sister Ray Enterprises. Proceeds from the auction will help further develop the Lou Reed Archive.
